Browsing with your phone

Lifehacker asks: Do you browse the web with your mobile phone? The results are not too surprising given that the survey is of a self-selected sample, but the comments portray an interesting range of mobile browsing habits and platforms. Apparently the iPhone users just love browsing and think that other platforms are inadequate. (Full disclosure: I browse almost constantly with a Samsung A900M, Opera Mobile, and a Sprint unlimited data plan.)

Comments indicate that mobile browsing substitutes for casual news reading, information seeking on the fly (e.g., looking up an actress during a movie), handling maps, and carrying catalog files. In a small segment, mobile is now a threat to paper.
